Rafting FAQs

Can I still go white water rafting if I can't swim?

Ideally you will know how to swim, but it's not necessary, but it is important that you let us know at the time of booking and advise your guide before you commence your rafting experience. Our life jackets are also to the highest industry standard.

What is the minimum age for white water rafting?

A minimum physical size is required for rafting. The minimum age for rafting is 14 years (with some exceptions), however we reserve the right to refuse to raft older children should we consider their build to be too slight.

How fit do I need to be?

Moderate level of fitness is adequate for rafting without any major disabilities. Only individuals with chronic asthma, physical disabilities and pregnant ladies are not permitted so as to avoid any mishap.

What should I wear?

You just need to bring your swimwear, shorts, and a towel. We will provide you with the rest of the gear which will include wetsuits, fleece tops, wetsuit booties, and splash jackets depending on the weather conditions. Our life jackets, helmets, and paddles are the best you can buy and are are provided to everyone.

How many people are in the raft?

There are up to seven people plus the guide in the raft.
